Just wondering which is better, so far I like STD, but I don't really want to download backtrack if I don't have to. Has anyone here used it?

Backtrack is only good as a live CD and it's a personal preference. Backtrack doesn't lend itself well to newbies, so get an idea of what programs it runs and how each of them work, or just experiment around reading tutorials on remote-exploit for it.

I have backtrack installed on my eee pc and in vmware and I love it. Ive tried knoppix but backtrack is better imho, supported really well by a helpful community. I agree with lemur it is nice and graphical, just dont fall into the trap of always using the guis!

Bottom line is its well maintained, works really well (comes with drivers patched for injection for most wireless card chipsets) and its easy to use. Couldnt ask for more.

www.remote-exploit.org

Get on it.

Bactrack works great with my otherwise-poor wireless card. Even allows me to send deauth packets but doesn't let me collect the resulting handshake Sad . It's a real good OS however if you were seriously going to choose I would go Bactrack, install it on HDD then just install all the knoppix-STD apps as well.

I dont think knoppix has anything backtrack doesnt, ive never had to install a tool to backtrack, its just there. For example I was reading about genereating your own rainbow tables to crack WPA networks, just opened the terminal and typed the program (genpmk) and it was there, along with more than one WPA cracking software. It also has a relly neat python script called fast-track which allows you to update from svn: with a gui menu, it even compiles and make installs the new software!

thats new to backtrac 3 beta (latest version).

I would install it to HDD, its faster.

I had my live CD with Auditor (old Back|Track project) Knoppix STD and Back|Track and i say, some programs is onyl available on some distros. For example that nifty program to change MAC address on a Network Adapter was only available on Auditor and there was one program that only was on STD. But over all, Back|Track is the shit! Pfft

I've tried both and unlike everyone else on this site, i prefer Knoppix to Backtrack. Here's why: 1.) Most times you download BT, it comes from most torrents with adware and shit and unless you have updated software, you pretty much get fukked down the road. 2.) Backtrack is hard as hell to remove from your hardrive. 3.) I honestly think BT is harder on a "newbie" than Knoppix STD because you pretty much start as a script kiddie and the St34lth readme file for BT basically tells you how to screw with people rather than do a legit pentest on your own system. But, i guess that's what kids think nowadays. Pretty much if i use a program to hack, i'm a hacker...umm no. That's why i prefer nuclearwintercrew over most providers.
